  • Farmlevel Story

    Farmlevel

    Home to and name for the tallest mountain in Costa Rica, Chirripo is not historically a specialty coffee growing region. This is one of the least traveled coffee sectors in Costa Rica with it’s rocky slopes and ‘end of the road’ feel.

    Jose Eladio Alvarado Abarca inherited his 19 hectare farm ‘El Higueron’ from his grandfather in 2010. Just in time for the Micro Mill revolution Jose began seeing the prices for coffee were so low that he was unable to properly attend to his farm and the growing needs for quality. In 2014 Jose and his wife Annie opened their Mill, Imperio Rojo. This investment brought down the cost of production and assisted in the improvement of their quality. With the profits of the past 6 years Imperio Rojo has invested in a dry mill and raised beds and is looking forward to doing some variety experimentation in the years to come.
